How often do you change your favorite recipes? If you’ve been learning how to meal plan for any length of time, chances are that you have your favorite meals on rotation.
But if you’re bored with your traditional favorites, or if you’re looking for some new meals to add to your rotation, these easy vegetarian recipes are perfect to make for Meatless Mondays, on Fridays during Lent, or even just to add some new dinners to your meal plan.
I get it. Cooking when your family has dietary restrictions is challenging enough. And when you finally find some recipes that the kids can eat (and actually enjoy), you stick to them!
My kids have food allergies, but I’ve been so tired of making the same boring pasta dishes on repeat. But cooking with food allergies can get expensive, so I’ve been exploring meatless options.
These vegetarian (and vegan – I included substitutions since my kids are allergic to milk and egg) recipes are easy to make.
They’re also perfect for busy weeknights, and they can even be prepped ahead of time if you love freezer cooking (hint: if you’re looking for more amazing freezer meals, MyFreezEasy has an awesome collection of “clean eats,” vegan, and allergen-friendly recipes on their meal planning app).
Whether you’re trying to get picky eaters to eat more vegetables or want to try meatless versions of your favorite recipes, these recipes are delicious. They’re also the ultimate comfort food!
